President's Initiative to Prevent Sexual Misconduct: Our next steps

Wednesday, May 17, 2017

In a May 16 campus-wide email, President Kaler announced his President's Initiative to Prevent Sexual Misconduct

Our determined efforts to combat sexual misconduct continue. We must take next steps to ensure safety, respect, and a culture that reflects our deeply held institutional values.

As you may remember, late last year I convened an ad hoc working group that assessed our current efforts to prevent and respond to sexual misconduct -  including harassment and assault. In March, I pledged in my State of the University address to advance the group's recommendations.  

Today, our attention to this challenging issue is no less important than it was when the working group first met.
